GDC 2010 in San Francisco was the platform where ATI announced their Open Stereo 3D Initiative, where it involves a slew of partners to ensure support for multiple different stereoscopic 3D solutions. The whole idea behind this movement would be to offer consumers more choices when it comes to selecting an S3D solution, alongside additional innovations and a concerted effort in lowering costs for both hardware and software so that the adoption rate will be increased. Among the upcoming line of 3D products will comprise of a 3D-enabled ATI Eyefinity technology (a rival to Nvidia’s 3D Vision Surround), 120Hz 3D-ready displays and notebooks, active shutter glasses and passive polarized ones, S3D support for DirectX 9, 10 and 11, Quad Buffered OpenGL and Blu-ray 3D support among others.
